Issues exporting a Mosaic Dataset.

Hoping someone can help me with my problem.  I was tasked with taking historic naip images for each county in Montana and making a seamless image for the entire state that can be used in another application to be clipped based on a user's input.

The images were .sid format and since the imagery overlapped county boundaries it needed to be clipped to the county boundary and then mosiaced together.

I have been able to clip the images and mosaic them together with no problem. The issue comes when trying to export the dataset to a single image, currently a tiff, so that the other application can use it for clipping.

The issue is that the exported image displays as all black but it has RGB values when you use the info tool to click around the image. It also has the issue of not maintain the true extent of the entire state. 

Anyone familiar with why this might be happening and what I can do to correct this issue. I tried this entire process on a smaller scale of 4 counties and it worked with no issues. This is done using 10.1.
